The Mosques of New York is a collaborative project aims at documenting each of the Muslim communities' mosques. Its goal was to highlight the ways in which these buildings reflect and create identities for Muslims under a dense urban fabric. The project reflects a desire to disrupt the image of Islam as an alien culture while documenting the emergence of an American Muslim architectural identity. Professor Jerrilynn D. Dodds, photographer Edward Grazda, and a team of young Muslim architects, compiled testimonies of builders and users of the mosques, spatial analysis, and photo documentation of a community occupying and transforming the mosques.
